Everyone deserves a holiday every so often, including yourself! Even a short break away from the everyday hustle and bustle of work, school, and more is enough to rejuvenate you and give you the energy you need to put in 100% effort. It doesn’t have to be an international trip where you travel to the other side of the world either, it’s much simpler than that.
These trips could be with your family or your friends, and you might be thinking of the typical away in the countryside sort of getaway. We say that this isn’t the only way to relax, though! City breaks and getaways can be just as relaxing as well as memorable and with so many things to do, you’ll be spoilt for choice! Whether you want to play online casino or hit the city to see its night attractions, we’re sure there’ll be something for everyone. Keep reading below for some travel inspiration on making your Canadian city break the most entertaining it can be.
As the capital of Canada, it’s not a surprise that this is one of the first spots on our list! If you’re a bit of a history nerd, then this is the perfect city break for you. Home to some of the most majestic and impressive architecture, as well as museums and Parliament Hill, there’s plenty for you to see and learn! It is also home to the iconic River Ottawa and a great place to start excursions. The excellently efficient public transport system means that you can really get to see the city up close and personally. If you’re heading there in the winter months, then you’ll be greeted with one of the largest open ice rinks, a perfect activity before you hit Canada’s oldest open farmer’s market, the ByWard!
If you want to get a feel of France without actually traveling to France, then the most authentic place for that feel would be Montreal! One of the places we’d consider an absolute must to visit while you’re there is Mont Royal Park, a breathtaking place featuring a lake, a sculpture garden, and beautiful woodlands. An amazing spot to have a picnic and to see the golden leaves falling during Autumn. And, of course, you wouldn’t be getting the true French experience without stopping for the food scene. You can’t leave without trying their iconic poutine made up of fries, gravy, and cheese… Mmmmmm. You don’t have to tell us twice!
If you want to see some aesthetic sights and unforgettable scenery, then Vancouver ticks those boxes. One minute is spent looking at the incredible mountains, and within the next hour, you can find yourself in the city. Vancouver really is a city like no other, thanks to its versatile weather and seasons. In the winter, you can hit the ski slopes for all your winter sports fun, and in the summer, laze away down by the lake as the sun beams down onto you. Stanley Park is another unmissable site made up of over 1000 acres. There’ll be no way to see it all in one go, but that’s perhaps all the more reason to keep revisiting.
If you’re looking to blend both city and a bit of coastal holiday, then Halifax is definitely somewhere that you should plan for. It was originally built around the waterfront and boasts one of the busiest ports on the East Coast even today. Of course, you won’t find better seafood elsewhere than in a waterfront city. Classic lobster, shrimp, mussels, you name it, they have it all, and of course, fresh as fresh can be. Point Pleasant Park is another great spot to stop at if you’re looking for an ocean-side picnic or just a short walk with scenic views!
Last but certainly not least, we had to have Toronto on the list. With such a variety of things to do for both the summer as well as winter activities, you’ll wish that you had planned a longer trip. Downtown is definitely the place to be for the culture, people, food, and more. Known as the city that never sleeps, Downtown is a place that’s alive both day and night. With some of the most interesting club spaces being converted from industrial spaces, Toronto has a unique feel to it that can’t be found anywhere else. Thanks to the fact that it is home to almost 3 million people, you find a blend of cultures that transfers over to cuisine, so you can be sure that you’ll get some of the best food that can’t be found anywhere else, as well as traditional Canadian dishes that originated as early as the 18th and 19th centuries.
